Sometimes I wonder
Sometimes I know
Sometimes I think I know
But I don't

There are answers
Beyond my grasp
Some things I think I should know
I have to ask

And that's just the way
Of the world
It's just the way
That it goes

It's not freedom
When you set me free
Some things I think I deserve
Are not meant to be

There is wisdom
I'll not be told
Some things I think make me wise
Just make me old

And that's the way
That it goes
It's just the way
Of the world

I ask myself
What is my fate
Sometimes I think it's my turn
But I have to wait

There are meanings
I'm not meant to know
Some things I want so much
But the answer is no

And that's the way
Of the world
It's just the way
That it goes
